construction impacts to the neighborhood. it moves them just to the other side of columbus. this pagoda property faces columbus, so the disruption to traffic is inevitable and the dirt and all the other things are still there. it's not a handful of people that are opposed to it as supervisor chiu said. in all the meetings i have been to, a majority have been opposed to. one official at the community meeting was cut short by a fire alarm. it's been very frustrating to the people attending that meeting that we were not allowed to ask questions. the likelihood of a north beach stop is next to nil. the agreement with the owner does not allow for a station at that site, i understand. i would also like to dispute the idea that they keep saying it will be a 50' height limit on the project. it's supposed to be based on the conditions of the original permit, which limited the building to the existing building envelope only part of which was 50' high. i worry about the loss of that particular specific wording in all of these documents and i brought this to the attention of mr. chiu's offic

obviously much better than the columbus avenue extraction. we have worked and supported. our neighborhood merchants and neighbors not disrupting the business community for over a year or two. we also have a strong feeling that the pagoda site's $9 million expenditure to extract tbms which have salvage value at most 4.4 to $6 million is illogical. by not even extracting the machines at the pagoda, by varying the machines as has been done in new york city, in brisbane, australia, in the tunnel in the english channel, where machines are either lowered below tunnels or shifted to the side or [speaker not understood], that machines can be buried. machines can be extracted technically at any point in a project. the chinatown retrieval of the tbms was the base project in the approved e-i-r. it is technically feasible. it saves two extending tunnels that are about 4,000 total feet, saving about $70 million. why not save $80 million and put it into muni? thank you. >>> president fong, commissioners, my name is aaron peskin. i had the pleasure of voting for the environmental impact rep

afternoon, and thank you for listening to all of us. i'm lori thomas, the owner at 532 columbus, which is right on the block before columbus and union. i just wanted to reiterate what i have already told a lot of folks here and director reiskin, which is this is a difficult situation and i think the pagoda palace is the best alternative, as well as i can understand to minimize the disruption in north beach. during the period full time from august to the end of, nor when we had the utility work going forward, our monday to friday lunch sales dropped 25%. i would recommend that the city and mta consider some sort of rent credit for the co-located businesses, certainly on that specific block, perhaps. because it's hard to project all of the influences that affect drops in revenue; right? so i do want to say that i appreciate all the work that everybody has done to try to come up with a solution and if we have to bring the devices up in north beach, i think the pagoda theater offers the best alternative that i am aware of right now. but i do want to speak as a business owner and recognize

day as the first community meeting to provide details about the proposed construction on columbus avenue. in 2008, the plan to extract the tunnel-boring machines in north beach was approached by the sfmta and the planning commission. between 2008 and this past may the sfmta did not do any outreach about the construction plans in north beach and when my constituents learned about this -- director reisk and many other staff from the mta met numerous times to hear concerns raised between last summer and the last few weeks. and to recap the sfmta began considering a number of alternatives to the columbus avenue extraction, that were raised by my office and the community. and presented four options at a community meeting last november. the pagota optioned was welcomed by most attendees, as well as leaving the tbms in the ground north of the chinatown station. i want to thank the sfmta staff for studying the option we're looking at today and presenting it an alternative. the board directed its staff to pursue the pagota a option. first the pagota theater option is far less disruptive to

street instead of our previous plan or current plan to remove them from columbus avenue in front of washington square park. the plan was to remove them from the public right-of-way, but in response to community concerns raised with the disruption that would cause to the north beach community, we began looking for alternatives to that plan and looking at ones in particular that would reduce the disruption that would impact the north beach community. we identified four different -- we narrowed our search down to four different options. we went with president chiu to the community in november and presented those options, presented the pros and conses as we saw them with each. and of those the pagoda palace option removing the tunnel boring machines from the pagoda site as opposed to from the public right-of-way was the one that both had community support and the one that would not inhibit a future project. * the community was supportive of a few different options. the pagoda palace option swills another, leaving the tunnel boring machines in the ground in chinatown. however, what we ad

is currently planned for columbus and union and moves it completely off-site to an off-street location where that extraction can happen without the disruption that would be caused by the columbus and union project. thirdly, and this is something i would expect most of you to respond to, it remove from the heart of our neighborhood a rusting hull being of a building that has been a symbol of our neighborhood's inability to get its architectural and commercial act tonighttion. it's time for that building to go. and whatever would fake it away and allow the future to roll on, i'm in support of. * this item also keeps two of the best things about the columbus and union extraction. it allows the salvage value of the tunnel boring heads to offset the cost of extraction, and important to those of us who support a station in north beach, that is the majority of my neighbors in my opinion, it preserve the section of tunnel that's currently planned in phase ii that runs from chinatown to north beach. it's already paid for. it's a done deal. and it allows that section of tunnel to be bui

whether they're residents or businesses instead of doing it on columbus avenue, we're now doing it on the pagoda site, which i imagine will be less impactful or a lot less impactful than doing it in the street. we've got a project that's pretty much identical to the project we approved, but probably has more opportunity and more feasibility to be built. and i agree with ms. christiansen, i hope this leads to more debate about than it is here, extending the subway to north beach and onto fisherman's wharf. so, i guess the only question i have is something mr. bruno raised about could we impact or could we reduce the impact on the neighborhood even more by moving the machines to the side, you know, under the new library, under the park, under joe di maggio, under some other right-of-way and leave them there. i didn't see that alternative as being discussed. is that an alternative that you all thought about and dismissed for some reason or another? >> thank you, commissioner hillis. but that was one when i mentioned we had explored i think four different options that we brought to the

boring machine to columbus and union. supervisor chiu also wanted me to offer our sincere thanks to the sfmta staff as well as staff from other relevant departments specifically the city attorney's office, planning, and the department of building inspection because although we're not there yet, the city staff that had been working on this project has engaged in an incredible amount of work in a short amount of time to even get where we are now. we do -- we are cautiously optimistic that the city will achieve agreement with the property owner and that we will be able to move forward at planning on thursday and at the board on the coming monday. i am available and will be here through the public comment on this item. like to hear from the public and see if any directors have any question. i did want to say our office is working on responding on supervisor chiu's behalf. questions have been raised from muni and also from some other residents and businesses in the neighborhood. the biggest concern that we are -- we will be tracking is the impact of even the pagoda option specifically a

columbus and leaving them. they were, as i mentioned for the different alternatives that we brought forward to the community, there were pros and cons. in the end the confluence of being able to help address the pagoda site, of being able to pull the machines out as is currently contemplated in our contract, not leave something underground, that kind of tipped the balance. at that particular meeting at the time there was -- seemed to be little to no public support for bringing the machines to north beach and leaving them in the ground. but that is something that's viable, it's something that we could do. but in weighing the different pros and cons of the project and the impact on the community, the pagoda was -- seemed far and away the best option. >> and just so we know, it's irrelevant to the approvals. what is that process like? i mean, actually, you know, excavating and making that extraction tunnel and extracting the machinery, how long does that take? i mean, is it similar to building a building there? how long impactful is it to the neighbors? >> so, the extraction itself, it will be

tunnel boring machines from columbus avenue. as the supervisor said, and you're correct in saying, if it weren't for his leadership and the leadership of mayor lee, we wouldn't have gotten this done. it really took the city family coming together and the personal involvement of president chiu and mayor lee. so, very grateful that we are all able to come together. as he he also said, it wasn't just the mta staff, but planning department, city attorney's office. we had the economic development folks involved, the building inspection, really everybody coming together in a pretty extraordinary way and under an extraordinary timeline. so, what we're happy to be bringing to you, a proposed lease that we were close to having done in time for last meeting, have now since gotten done. didn't want to bring it to you until it was signed by the other party, and until the initial planning commission approvals or the planning commission approvals were in place, which we secured last thursday in this room that they approved i think three different pieces of legislation. and the special use district

will go over a few incidents that happened on broad way and columbus, there was an aggravated assault and the victim was stabbed six times at a parking lot across from the seller. looking into it, as far as what we know so far, there is a verbal altercation in the club and it did not amount, as far as we know into a yelling match or anything like that. much, less of a fight. but the victim, left the club, went across the street and was attacked by about 8 people. he was kicked, punched and went down to the ground and then he was stabbed three times in the chest and two times in the stomach. so when things like this happen, you are trying to think, is there anything that the club could have done differently. at this point, i don't know. if there was a small, if there is an argument, you know, who knows whether or how verbal that was or whether it ruled out i don't know yet. so i am going to reserve judgment. but i do want you to know that that did happen. we are also dealing with the parking garage and maybe improving lighting or they did not have an attendant there. >> these are the t

down columbus avenue. recently the north beach businesses found out about the plan to extract these enormous machines and erupted in a fury. i am grateful for chiu because she arranged for four or five meetings. almost everybody else at meeting four voted to extract the machines at chinatown. it presented five options for the extraction of the machines. it was stunning that north beach belatedly was given the opportunity to have a say in this proposed disruption of our neighborhood. we found out about it. the vote at the meeting where i was at, not acknowledged by director riskin or david chu or john -- more than half of the meeting voted for the chinatown extraction. then somehow the pagoda palace was cited as the preferred site. suddenly, it's like joel campos, the original developer of the site he was given permission for condos and restaurants and commercial space two or three years ago but we were told that he ran out of money. suddenly he was offered a two year lease, and for god sake a suppolmental eir renewing all its permits which have expired. 27 parking spaces for 19 cond
